Stay in­formed about the lat­est in­for­ma­tion on the out­break, avail­able on the WHO web­site and else­where, and take care of your health by do­ing the fol­low­ing:

Asian Geographic - - Coronaviru­s Feature -

Wash your hands fre­quently with an al­co­hol-based hand rub or soap and wa­ter. Wash­ing your hands is the most ef­fec­tive way of re­duc­ing the trans­mis­sion of the virus

If you have mild res­pi­ra­tory symp­toms and no travel his­tory to or within China, care­fully prac­tice ba­sic res­pi­ra­tory and hand hy­giene and stay home un­til you are re­cov­ered, if pos­si­ble

If you have fever, cough or dif­fi­culty breath­ing, seek med­i­cal care early. Res­pi­ra­tory symp­toms with fever can have a range of causes, and de­pend­ing on your per­sonal travel his­tory and cir­cum­stances, COVID-19 could be one of them

Main­tain so­cial dis­tanc­ing – main­tain at least 1 metre (3 feet) be­tween your­self and other peo­ple. When an in­fected per­son coughs or sneezes they project small droplets con­tain­ing the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the virus

Avoid touch­ing eyes, nose and mouth. Hands touch many sur­faces that may be con­tam­i­nated with the virus. If you touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your con­tam­i­nated hands, you may trans­fer the virus from the sur­face to your­self
